Review – Titanic

Yabed Tiempos, Student Journalist

In the beginning of thus beautiful story of love, we can see a young man who is called Jack Dawson and some of his friends playing a card game in a bar. Another man looks worried and mad and is betting on who will get a pass and a lot of money for riding on this fancy boat called the Titanic that Thomas Andrews has just created.  Meanwhile, we see a fascinating and elegant women called Rose DeWitt Bukater and her mother Ruth. They are both going through a hard time, because her mother is a widow who lost her husband and therefore has no money, and she is a selfish woman that wants to live a rich lifestyle so she found a wealthy fiance for her daughter. His name is Cal Hockley. Although he can give Rose and her mother a rich life, we can see the man is a toxic and controlling person. Jack and Rose then meet on the ill-fated Titanic and fall in love. 

Five words I would use to describe this movie are kind, happy, glamorous, nervous, and great. One thing I really liked from the movie was the part when Jack was holding Rose’s arms and looking at the sea like two romantic doves. One part I dislike about the movie is the part where the fiance tried to kill Jack and blamed him for taking something he did not take. In my opinion, the people who would like this movie are people who like romance and adventure because it is about two people who fall in love on a huge ship that sinks. To me, this movie is similar to Romeo & Juliet because at the end Jack dies cold like an ice cube, and Rose’s parents didn’t want her to be with Jack because he was poor. I really loved the directing because the director used a lot of accurate things that happened in the real life story of the Titanic and the acting was so entertaining because the actors made it feel like you were living the same story as the real people. The main actors of the movie were Leonardo Dicaprio and Kate Winslet. I would give this movie a five star rating because it is so entertaining and realistic. I would recommend this movie to romantic lovers. 

At around 2:20 AM on the morning of April 15th, 1912 the Titanic disappeared beneath the surface of the Atlantic Ocean, a disaster that resulted in the loss of more than 1,500 lives, almost two-thirds of the people on board. For more interesting facts about the real titanic, check out
